We choose to invest for an inclusive future, where we all belong
At Ivanhoé Cambridge, we are convinced that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are essential to being an innovative and sustainable employer and investor. We are committed to creating a sense of inclusion and belonging within our teams and the communities in which we invest.
Foster an inclusive culture where each person can achieve their full potential and where diverse voices, identities and perspectives are recognized and valued.
Leverage our influence to drive change in diversity, equity and inclusion within our sector, in order to build an inclusive future with accessible and innovative spaces where everyone belongs.
“As a leader in the real estate ecosystem, we are duty-bound to invest in and prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion. Ivanhoé Cambridge has what it takes to be a catalyst in driving major DEI initiatives forward, and I intend to work with my team to wield this influence and effect lasting change.”Nathalie Palladitcheff
President and CEO
“DEI is not a question of political correctness. We must acknowledge that inequalities exist, that bias and groupthink exist. When we acknowledge this, we can then embrace the fact that a diversity of ideas and perspectives helps us make better decisions which lead to more innovative and resilient outcomes.”George Agethen
Co-Head of Asia-Pacific
“To ensure the long-term performance and resilience of our assets, the spaces we create must be inclusive and meet the expectations of a diverse and constantly evolving society. With this ambition and because we have a great responsibility both as an investor and as an employer, we have chosen to implement an exacting and structured DEI strategy within our teams on the one hand and with our business partners on the other.”Audrey Camus
Vice President, Development and Asset Management,
“The organisations that will succeed are those that will foster diversity. Those that will thrive will be committed to building a strong sense of connection, of belonging and an engaging culture leveraging diverse voices at the table and tapping into hidden gems. That’s what inclusion is all about.”Sunita Mahant
Head of Global Initiatives,
